Titans WR Britt fined $478 after guilty plea in car-chase case

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges related to an April 12 car chase and was fined $478 in Bayonne (N.J.) Municipal Court, *The Tennessean* reported via Twitter on Wednesday.

Britt had a felony charge downgraded last week and faced three disorderly person charges to go with motor vehicle charges.

The incident in question occurred in Bayonne, N.J., Britt's hometown. After Britt was clocked driving his blue Porsche at 71 mph in a 50-mph zone, officers attempted to stop the vehicle. Instead, Britt sped up his car and began weaving in and out of highway traffic before exiting the highway and later being spotted on a local street with another passenger walking away from the vehicle. Britt and the passenger denied being in the vehicle, according to a police report.

Britt was arrested and charged with eluding a police officer, lying to an officer hindering apprehension and obstructing governmental function following a stop. Eluding an officer is a third-degree felony, while the other charges are misdemeanors.

Britt did not join his Titans teammates for a player-organized workout at Father Ryan High School in Nashville later Wednesday.

Britt, the team's 2009 first-round pick, led the Titans in receiving yards (775) and touchdown receptions (nine) this past season.
